Why is y = 0? Because at the x-intercept, y is equal to 0. function related equation**The solutions, or roots, are NOT ordered pairs.**y y • • • • x x The solutions, or roots, are –4 and 1. The solutions, or roots, are –2 and 2.**Write the quadratic formula:**What happens to the quadratic equation if the value under the radical is a zero? What is this the formula for?**If the vertex of the parabola is on the x-axis, there is one**solution. It is the x-coordinate of the vertex. y • x There is one solution.**What do you predict will happen when there is a negative**under the radical? What does the graph look like to support your answer?**If the parabola does not intersect the x-axis, then there is**no real solution. y x There are no real solutions, or roots.**Another way to identify how many solutions there are to an**equation, if any, is to use the discriminant. In the quadratic formula, the expression inside the radical is called the discriminant. discriminant b2 – 4ac The Number of Solutions of a Quadratic Equation If the discriminant is positive, then the equation has two solutions. If the discriminant is zero, then the equation has one solution. If the discriminant is negative, then the equation has noreal solution.**State the value of the discriminant. Then determine the**number of real roots of the equation. Write problem. Identify values for a, b and c. Write discriminant expression. Substitute values for a, b, and c. (Place values in parentheses to avoid sign errors and change subtraction to addition.) Simplify to find the discriminant. Identify the number of solutions. two**State the value of the discriminant. Then determine the**number of real roots of the equation. Example 3 Example 2 Example 1 one two no real roots**State the value of the discriminant.
